To discuss the menace of air pollution a session "Air pollution in Indian cities - present status and future action" was also held.

It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic bags and plastic products than fish in the ocean if plastic pollution is not addressed today.

"This knowledge suggests that there is something not quite sustainable in the way we as a society are conducting ourselves-lifestyle, consumption, and production".

Mishra stressed that issues such as Particulate Matter, vehicular emissions and industrial pollution need positive contribution of people to go together with government initiatives.

"The government is offering 80 per cent subsidy on combined technological innovation of straw management system and happy seeder", he pointed out.

"This plan needs to be rolled out soon", Mr. Mehta said and added that local action is critical to manage air pollution.

He opined that the two challenges in addressing air pollution are low awareness and building the collective will of people to take action.
